State Education Agency Roles in Teacher Collective Negotiations.
Peterson, Jon M.
Based on a survey of State education agencies (SEAs), this study gathered quantitative and qualitative information about the roles SEAs assume in teacher collective negotiations at the State and district levels. Variations in State laws and in SEA role responsibilities created research problems. The results indicate that SEAs most frequently assume an informational role, but that they also have some involvement in policy development and in advising. Only a few SEAs perform regulatory or administrative roles. SEA involvement increases as the State laws become more complex. The study concludes that SEAs are significant actors in teacher collective negotiations and that they play a role even when another State agency has specific authority to administer the negotiations laws.
